Pretend Play

My kids cannot seem to ever preoccupy themselves - even for seven minutes! So I created them some free pretend play printables to keep them distracted... works for 23 minutes or so ;) So I decided to share. 

Pretend play store with link to free printable money.

My kids love playing mail - so I designed these cute printable postcards

Kids can also get a small box and decorate it for their own mailbox.

Pretend Play Restuarant

I created Lily Beauty Salon printables a couple days ago and asked her what she wanted next - she said Wendy's?  Lol okay so I interpreted that as a restaurant.

I created a restaurant sign, menu, money, and checks to write down orders on.

Restaurant sign - where kids can write their own name - Dylan is so proud he can write his name now!

Or you can write it for them.

Lily asked for a page with different food so I created a menu with pictures and prices.

Here is the front of the menu, so I printed it doubled sided.

I get confused sometime so usually draw a little arrow in the bottom right corner to try to figure out which way to print it on the back side. 

It was slightly see through so I am going to buy some thicker grade computer paper (when its not  -30 degrees below Celsius and my car actually starts...)

I created some waitress pads so the kids could take the customer orders.

I attached them together with a paperclip.

Lily is in grade one so she can write words down if she is helped with the spelling of them and at 4 Dylan drew pictures of the menu items and added the prices. 

They used basic math to figure out the totals and took turns being the customer. 

And I created some emoji inspired money to go along with it

I also designed Kawai money and Batman money if you would prefer. 

Hope you and your family enjoy it too!

Hire a Superhero

I created beauty salon printables for Lily, and Dylan was such a sport playing he just liked being in charge of the money so I decided to create a game he would enjoy a little more so I created "Hire a Superhero"

So someone in need of help can hire a super hero with their money.

Since I created Kawaii money for Lily I decided to create batman money for Dylan as it's his favourite.

And I saved them 6 to a page with two different denominations for easy printing.

Lily decided she needed help as she was electrocuted? and hired Dylan who got a batman robe with this adorable hood with eyes, cape and iron man suit for Christmas.

And pin this post for later as I will be adding all the superhero masks shortly.

Beauty Salon Printables

Lily loves when I print her out activities, and I love pretend play as it seems to keep the kids preoccupied more than some other activities without screen time. So I created some free beauty salon printables and thought I would share.

I created two different signs, and left them blank so you can write in your childs own name, or they can do it themselves.

Beauty Salon Sign - you can tape this sign to a wall or door or attach a ribbon and hang it over a door knob. 

Beauty Salon sign - foldable. This one is designed to be folded in half and placed on a table or counter. If you have trouble with it staying up fold the ends inwards about a an inch or so.

Here is a list of Beauty Salon services, I love anything Kawaii inspired it is so adorable!

I also decided to create some money; Kawai themes money in different colours: as that's half the fun, Dylan decided he was the cashier and handed out all the money.

I saved three of each domination to a page for easy printing and you can print out as much money as you like (read: feel like cleaning up afterwards)

I even let my 6 year old paint my nails hot pink, she was very proud of herself and luckily for me she is getting better at it.

Hope you have fun!
